Guadeloupe extends call for new dam monitoring of Dumanoir Dam

The government of Guadeloupe has extended bidding for a new period of auscultation dam monitoring of Dumanoir Dam, in the commune of Capesterre Belle Eau in Guadeloupe. Bids now are due September 2.

The eastern Caribbean island group, an overseas department of France, previously called for bids July 18.

It awarded a 214,298 euro (US$297,917) contract in 2011 to Anteagroup of France to perform such monitoring of Dumanoir Dam through 2014. It also awarded contracts in 2008 to the French-based unit of Stucky of Switzerland to perform failure analyses of Dumanoir and of Moreau Dam in the commune of Goyave. The government took bids in January to build Moreau.

In the current solicitation, Conseil General de la Guadeloupe seeks a firm to perform monitoring of Dumanoir Dam from 2014-2017. It is to utilize auscultation equipment already in place at the water supply project including piezometers, flow meters, pressure sensors, and a weather station.
